steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney being asked by somebody in the audience how can we get those moochers to stop taking our tax money and living on the dole. he answered that question with 47%. the conversations taking place inside the conservative base shows ugliness outwardly. >> steve schmidt, the other thing in that video is a strong sense of superiority. we are superior people to the other people we're talking about, be it the president of the united states or anyone that votes for him. >

spectacle and full-blown revolt. your colleague, steve cohen from tennessee said sometimes they, the white house, takes us for granted. we're on the front lines and they need to come up with something and many of them are talking about fred upton and an unnamed house democrat said about the white house this, that it has no plan b. no apparent fix and they're clueless on top of. that upon pill clinton sure didn't make it easier. they need to figure out something by friday fast. is that what we're seeing now, sir, is the fact that the white house is now trying to get out on the heels of president clinton coming out and saying, you know what? if the president said that they have a plan that they like they should be able to keep it. he needs to fix that. >> well, i know there's a lot of frustration and people say things when they're frustrated that they would not say had they had time to think about it, but let me say this. the upton bill is not a good bill, and i want to say to the american people, in the upton bill, he allows insurance companies to continue to sell these sub-standard policie

delaying tactics, no more mickey mouse. and with any luck, there will be action. steve kornacki and joan walsh. well, the president's enemies have made history in the ferocity and frequency of their attacks on the most basic jobs of the president in febds they challenged his right but filibustering the confirmation of chuck hagel. to protect consumers by holding up his nominee for the protective bureau. for two full years. that nominee was finally confirmed in july. in october they challenged his right of blocking mel watt to head the federal housing finance committee. while it was to be the first member of congress to be denied confirmation since the civil war. and most recently, any judges between october 31st and november 18th. shot them all three of the president's nominees to d.c. court of appeals. today they invoke what's called the nuclear option. it kills the republican threat of a filibuster on most presidential appointments. but the bigger message is clear. democrats and this president have gone to war with their enemies finally. let's listen to the president. >> today's patter
